Teacups: Painted Tea Cup: Victorian: Arsenic: Toxic: Deadly

These vintage tea cups have been hand painted and could make a unique housewarming gift -- or simply just to decorate any table or room in your own home! You can proudly sip your tea or hot cider from these foreboding teacups or pour your guests a special cocktail from this sinful teapot.

The Victorian era is generally regarded as the Golden Age of Poison. Some say poisoning was a common female defense against abusive husbands. During this era, approximately forty women were tried for poisoning their husbands. Then, as now, folks new this number was very underreported. As a result, Parliament restricted poison sales in 1851.

Arsenic was the most popular deadly weapon & In addition to its darker purposes, arsenic was also used by ladies as a beauty product. They would ingest the poison in small doses in an attempt to pale their skin for a dainty and "faint" look.


This listing is for both tea cups and teapot.
Only two sets ever made. This is the last set.


Allow for artist brushstrokes as "Arsenic", "Deadly" and "Toxic" has been hand painted in black fancy script - it has been sealed with heat for longevity and can be hand washed after use.

Take gentle care and enjoy forever.
